Akara also known as fried bean cake, choose bean fritters, and acreage. This is a common breakfast in Nigerian homes. It is vegetarian or vegan, delicious, and easy to make. Let me show you how to make the best akara recipe that is fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside.


-2 Cups black-eyed peas dry

-1 Small Habanero

-3 ounces Red bell pepper approximately half of one red bell pepper

-1 small Onion finely chopped


-1 chicken bouillon cube

-1/4 cup water for blending - a little extra might be required

-Vegetable Oil 


Soak the beans in room-temperature water for about 15 mins. Drain the water and place the beans in the food processor.  

-Wash to remove dirt.

-Pour the clean beans into a blender, add the water, red bell pepper, habanero pepper, salt, bouillon powder, and crayfish, and blend until smooth.

-Whisk for about 3 to 4 mins.

-Add the finely diced onion and gently fold it with a wooden spoon or spatula in one direction.

-Heat some oil in a pan. -Drop heaping tablespoons of batter into the hot oil, frying in batches to prevent overcrowding. Flip once or twice to ensure even browning—fry the Akara for about five to six minutes, or until golden brown on all sides.
